In a massive confrontation on opening day of the 2017/2018 UEFA Champions League — a match that former Paris Saint-Germain and Liverpool Manager Gérard Houllier called good enough to be a Champions League final, according to Goal.com — Houllier’s two most famous former clubs will collide in a Group C match that will live stream from Anfield.
While Liverpool brings last season’s Premier League goal-scoring record-setter Mo Salah and Senegal international Sadio Mane, the Reds may be missing their Brazilian star Roberto Firmino, who was poked in the eye by Tottenham Hotspur’s Jan Vertonghen in Liverpool’s 2-1 victory over the Spurs on Saturday. Reds Manager Jurgen Klopp remains unsure that Firmino will be ready for the PSG clash on Tuesday night.
“When we had first-hand contact with him, after he was in hospital, it was a big relief for all of us,” Klopp told The Independent on Monday. “It is painful and no-one needs that but he will be fine – we just don’t know exactly when. Another 30 hours before the game? We will see how it develops.”
The defending, and seven-time, French Ligue 1 champions Paris Saint-Germain bring what may arguably be an even more stellar roster into the Champions League opener, led by Neymar — the world’s most expensive player, according to Sky Sports, at a transfer price of more than $260 million. France’s World Cup hero Kylian Mbappe makes his first visit to Anfield for the match as well.

Liverpool and Paris Saint-Germain have met in only two games before, and not since their two-legged tie in the now-defunct Cup Winners’ Cup competition back in 1996/1997, as the BBC recounted. That one was won on aggregate by PSG, 3-2. PSG have not won a UEFA Champions League match against an English Premier League side in their last four tries, while Liverpool has won seven of their last 12 matches against French teams in the Champions League and its predecessor tournament, the European Cup.
